To do a simple but unique build and keep the mechanical components of the bike intact
Got a sweet deal on a basket case Ironhead and thought of the idea shortly after I bought it. Always loved the Flat-Track races and that style of bikes.
I cut away the cam case, the chain sprocket cover, added an 18 inch laced wheel at the rear, a superglide tank. there is a lot to look at and a lot of creativity. When this was built I never saw anybody else that had cut the fat off their cases and been a long time since I saw a 1000cui Flat Track style bike. Now after many shows I see a lot of this style out there and makes me happy to see. I hope I was an influence for that.
Proud that I could resurect such a neglected and almost forgotten motorcycle into something this nice and fun to ride.
Most that see it want to buy it instantly but sometimes I think it is the beer talking. I do get a lot of interest and compliments on it. Some ask if the motor was made that way by the factory for racing. I love the input and explaining the history.
